Live at the Samsung SMART Studio, Tekzilla‘s Veronica Belmont chats with Shira Lazar and Ethan Newberry about the hottest trends and most crucial survival tips for CES 2013.
“We’re actually getting models that we’ll be able to buy this year,” she says, pinpointing the Ultra HD TV as the coolest item to emerge from this year’s Super Bowl of tech. After having perused the landscape for her own coverage on Tekzilla, she feels safe in concluding that last year was all about announcing and showcasing, whereas “now, we can actually take these things home with us.” She counters, “The downside of that is that there’s not a lot of content out there that’s been shot in 4K. So there’s a lot of upscaling of current HD content.”
Next, we challenge the tech wiz to a heated round of “Fact or Fictional,” based on her brand new YouTube series from Revision3 on the The Tech Feed YouTube channel where they “look at the science and technology from your favorite TV shows, movies, video games, comic books. Then we talk to experts to find out if it’s something that can actually exist in real life or if it’s just something that’s going to be in our imaginations forever.”
In terms of surviving the physical chaos of CES, Veronica advises the following: have comfortable shoes, staying hydrated, and eating every possible chance you have.
Also, legitimate question: “Why are there no napping pods?!”
